Haven’t been on in awhile and I’ve missed you all so much! My illness has ventured into unimagined depths of late. I’m seeing a neurologist later this week to find out why my arms occasionally don’t cooperate as well as why I walk like a drunk chicken from time to time. Despite my worst fear (M.S) my attitude is positive and I will not quit or give up. Any and all prayers would be greatly appreciated!
Now, onto my topic. My partner, Laurie, is in my humble opinion, the greatest singer to ever grace this planet. :) I’ve been a guitar “plunker” for years, although the drums is my true talent. Recently, we pulled the guitars off the wall which he had hanging for more decoration than anything. Our kids have expressed an interest in learning how to play and I’ve done my best, on my good days, to help them. An idea occured to me…why not build my own guitar? Granted, I’m not allowed around power tools at the moment, which bugs me because a wonderful friend bought me a bandsaw at a garage sale a month or so ago. But, I can use hand tools when my body is cooperating. Does anyone have a recommendation on books, videos, DVDs, etc.? WoodCraft offers guitar-making classes from time to time and I hope to go someday, but until then I’d like to get my hands/eyes on a good reference. If my illness has taught me anything, it’s to keep having goals and never stop dreaming and scheming.
I’m now headed to the Projects page so I can admire the incredible talent on this site!! Cheers!!!! :)
